The presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo said Ghana finds herself in difficult times under the leadership of President John Mahama, which, thus, requires a change, in national direction and leadership so Ghana can be restored onto the path of progress and prosperity.

“Our country is a rich country. It is poor governance that is keeping us where we are today. We have an opportunity this December to change the circumstances of our country. So I have come to appeal to you for the support of yourself and the people of the Gonja Kingdom,” he said.

He continued, “We, in the NPP, have the men and women who can give this country a first class government, and we have the policies that can get our country working again, create jobs for young people and bring about an improvement in the quality of life of all Ghanaians.”

He made this known when the campaign team visited the  overlord of Gonjaland, Yagbon Wura Tuntumba Bore Essa I on Friday, September 1, 2016 at the Jakpa Palace as part of his  4-day tour of the Northern Region.

The NPP flagbearer noted, that the provision of potable, drinking water is the reason why he announced the setting up of the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP).

This programme, he explained, will allocate US$275 million per year to tackle issues relating to infrastructural development and poverty eradication in rural and deprived communities across the country. This amount translates into US$1 million per constituency per year, to address the developmental needs of all constituencies across the country, and in this case the provision of water for Damongo.

On the part of the overlord of Gonjaland, Yagbon Wura Tuntumba Bore Essa I, he said  the major concern of his people is the lack of potable, drinking water.

According to him, residents of Damongo have been faced with the situation for years, and has appealed to Nana Akufo-Addo that “when Ghanaians give you their mandate, our request to you is that you help solve this problem of unavailability of water.”
